Located in Winsford, Cheshire. The Magnet Cinema was built and opened in the 1910’s. By the mid-1920’s it was operated by Pendleton’s Pictures. It was equipped with a Western Electric(WE) sound system in 1930, and was taken over by Sandbach Cinemas Ltd. In the 1940’s it advertised the Magnet cafĂ©, which was located beside the cinema.

In 1960 it was taken over by the Miles Jervis chain and was re-named Ritz Cinema. The proscenium was 33 feet wide for the CinemaScope screen. The Ritz Cinema was closed on 8th April 1961, and it went into other uses.
